The Source of Warmth

509Question: According to the laws of physics, if I want to create a heat-wave, I have to take it from somewhere, and somewhere it will be cold. How can I make sure that the warmth remains everywhere?

Answer: You have a constant source of warmth; it is the Creator. If you are taking warmth from Him, then you will have enough to immerse the entire world in warmth.

Through Coming Closer to Each Other

934Question: How can we promptly prepare each of our desires for correction and for receiving the upper abundance in accordance with the Creator’s desire?

Answer: This is done only through your coming closer to each other. Everything is revealed in the fact that you get closer to each other, and then everything works out for you. Coming closer means to accept the desires of the friends as our own and to ask for the fulfillment of their desires.

Friends show an example and include all of you in a single system. Whether you want it or not, you enter into their actions, and you reach a common effort.

Not all Restrictions Are the Same

253Question: Are the restriction of the Creator in relation to the creation and restriction of the creation in relation to the Creator the same?

Answer: No they are not the same. The Creator restricts His presence in order to give us the opportunity to reveal Him. We restrict our egoistic desire in order to give Him the opportunity to be revealed.

Reinstating the Creator as the Center of the Universe

238.01Question: We learn that any prayer should begin and end with gratitude. What should we add to the middle of our prayer on the days of Rosh HaShana?

Answer: We must add the desire to begin the work of reinstating the Creator in our eyes in a new way and elevating Him in our feelings and understanding to the highest point.

This is the only force that creates and builds us out of our fragmented forces, out of our lowest desires, that raises and unites us so that we can recreate Him and He will truly be the King of all creation, the Creator.

It all depends on our joint participation in order to create the correct universe in which we can feel its center—the Creator.

Only Together!

544Question: Do we need to do the internal work on self-criticism every day (it is recommended to devote half an hour to this)? Or do we determine this according to our state?

Answer: Of course you do it according to your state. But it is desirable for it to happen every day.

Question: Is it possible to do this work together in a group?

Answer: There is no work that cannot be done together. Try it, talk about it among yourselves, and see that you can do any job together.

If you build the criticism correctly, you will come to the right line.

Bare and Destitute in Spirituality

221.0Question: What is it to be bare and destitute in spirituality?

Answer: When a person does not have clothes on himself (Levushim), that is, Kelim (Vessels) for the surrounding light, then he is called bare.

He is called destitute when we say that he does not have a screen because a person simply has nothing to put on himself.

He can purchase the screen only through his request to the Creator.

Heartfelt Connection

938.07Question: How exactly should we feel a broken heart in order to want to connect?

Answer: You must feel how necessary it is to reach the purpose of creation. If we do not reach a heartfelt connection between us, we will not do anything in this world, in this life.

Question: Should we yearn for the Creator or for each other?

Answer: You cannot order this to happen. You should yearn to get closer to each other in order to reveal the Creator.

Hold onto the Creator

023Question: You say that we need to run after the Creator. If I rush to Him, then in the place He seems to be revealed, He immediately is concealed and is revealed in a different place, in other connections. How do we find the meaning of these revelations and concealments of the Creator?

Answer: You will find the meaning later. For now, you need to hold onto the Creator as much as possible. Imagine that you are running after Him, you want to cling to Him, hug Him, and constantly stay in this state more and more.

At first, you want to hold onto the Creator purely egoistically, and then move from these attempts to the fact that you want to be similar to Him, to be like Him. This is what it means to hold onto Him.

Try to hold onto Him with your feelings and qualities. You will succeed.

When the Creator is revealed, you must rush toward Him. And when He is concealed, you have to look for Him. You need to be directed to the Creator all the time, both in His concealment and in His revelation.

Rise above Criticism

931.02Question: How can we correctly conduct self-evaluation and critical analysis in the left line?

Answer: According to your feeling. You can do this by attributing everything to the Creator in order to give Him contentment and joy and reciprocate what you receive from Him.

Usually, the left line throws us away from the connection with the Creator. Then you take everything you can from your critical attitude to life and turn to Him with a request for correction.

We should try to rise above our states, connect together, and then begin to explore where we are far from the Creator and ask about it.

We are constantly aiming toward the Creator, and when we see that we are not in connection with Him, we turn this state into prayer.
